Fragrance is an important part of any woman’s wardrobe. It not only enhances the olfactory experience of every moment, but also expresses all facets of a fulfilled and radiant femininity. The collection of women perfume at Maison Francis Kurkdjian is like a wardrobe, offering you fragrances to wear in any occasion: elegant, natural or sophisticated, spontaneous or sultry.
Choosing the right perfume for a woman is like finding the key to a closed box filled with emotions. A perfect scent describes her dignity and character to the outside world while creating a memory that will remain with her throughout life.
Perfume was first created around the 2nd millennium B.C, and the art of selecting the best perfumes for women has never been more diverse. The most recent development in this category of cosmetics is the arrival of clean perfumes, with their more natural ingredients that are more suitable for sensitive skin. In addition, the perfume industry has evolved with new techniques to better capture the essence of flowers and natural elements for an intoxicating aroma that lasts longer.
The bestselling perfumes for women offer an array of irresistible scents that can be worn in any situation and are adapted to different age groups. For example, there are eau de toilette and eaux de parfum perfumes for teens that are lighter than the classic scents and have a more delicate and youthful profile that reflects their personality. There are even eau de parfum perfumes for babies and young children that contain less volatile substances that are safe to be used on the youngest members of your family.
With a few tweaks in the formula, many of these perfumes can be used for men as well. Nevertheless, the fragrance industry has not completely embraced this trend as the gender-specific categories are still the dominant ones for women’s perfumes and men’s fragrances. This is especially visible in the names and bottle designs, where women’s perfumes usually feature curved bottles and more feminine names such as Belle or Daisy, while men’s perfumes have dark colors and masculine scents with titles that conjure images of Bear Grylls type survivalists such as Sauvage or Le Male.
Regardless of the category, there are some universal fragrance notes that have been shown to be most popular. The perfume shopping website, OnBuy, analyzed the top 10 women’s perfumes and men’s fragrances to determine which scents are most commonly used in each. The results are listed below.
If you want a perfume that is both fresh and sweet, try one of the best perfumes for women such as Ralph Lauren’s Roses Vanille. This floral gourmand combines realistic rose and vanilla notes with bergamot, spring mimosa and Hawaiian wedding flower for an optimistic fragrance that is long-lasting and sure to turn heads. Or, opt for YSL’s Ck One, a fresh and fruity scent with a mix of tropical fruits such as lemon, papaya and pineapple combined with green tea and cardamom for a unique blend of fragrances that is both refreshing and invigorating.
